1 Arlington TX restaurant fails due to unsanitary conditions

No Arlington restaurants were closed during the Nov. 26 to Dec. 2 health inspections, but one recently reopened business failed a follow-up inspection, according to data from the city compiled by the Star-Telegram.

First Tofu and Fast Food at 2505 E. Arkansas Lane failed a follow-up inspection with a score of 67 on Dec. 1, according to a city of Arlington spokesperson. The inspector found a repeat violation of unsanitary conditions, food contamination, food held at unsafe temperatures and no paper towels at the hand washing sink.

The restaurant is currently open but will undergo additional follow-up inspections in the next few weeks, the spokesperson said.

First ToFu has been closed by the city four times since December 2022 and received two failing scores. Most recently, it was closed during the Nov. 10 inspection due to unsanitary conditions. Rat droppings were found in the kitchen, on equipment and in the dry storage, according to the city spokesperson. There was also no hot water at the hand sink.

The restaurant was allowed to reopen Nov. 11. after a follow-up inspection, the spokesperson said. The inspector noted that there was hot water at the hand sink, the rat droppings were gone and the kitchen floor was clean and repaired.
